Vote Could Ease Garage Sale Rules

March 24, 1998|JOHN POPE

The City Council tonight will consider easing regulations on outdoor garage sales, which some residents have criticized as overly restrictive.

Municipal codes allow residents just one garage sale a year and require a $10 permit fee.

The proposal under consideration would allow as many as three garage sales in a 12-month period and eliminate the permit fee. Each sale could last up to three days, with hours limited from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Officials said the proposal would make Westminster's codes more like those of surrounding cities, which generally allow two to four garage sales a year for each residence.

The council meets at 7 p.m. in the chambers at 8200 Westminster Blvd.

Information: (714) 898-3311.
